Bowdoin College (Neuroscience and Visual Arts)
Erin D’Agostino, a native Long-Islander, graduated Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa from Bowdoin College. She completed majors in Neuroscience and Visual Arts, pursuing her dual interest in science and art. She was the Head Academic Mentor for the Bowdoin Center for Learning, tutoring other college students primarily in executive functioning skills. Following her interest in the brain and learning, she then taught Chemistry, Biology, and English at The Landmark School, a high school for students with Language Based Learning Disabilities. She has completed a year of a Masters in Special Education from Simmons. She has also worked with children at a Neuropsychological Orphanage in Russia and with Albert Einstein’s Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center. She is currently applying to medical school with the intention of one day becoming a Pediatric Neurologist, and as a result has an acute understanding of the emotional journey involved in any application process. Erin continues to be fascinated by the capabilities of the brain and by the learning process, and through teaching hopes to share her love of learning.
I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”

Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
